Top 9 Myths of the Disability Resource Guide

  • Myth 1: Multiple service systems (i.e., Workforce, Vocational Rehabilitation, Mental Health, Employment Networks, Social Security Administration, etc.) cannot report a successful employment outcome when providing services and resources to the same customer.
  • Myth 2: One-Stop Career Centers that have performed accessibility surveys and as a result, addressed physical access issues and installed adaptive technology, have built the capacity to effectively serve customers with disabilities and other multiple challenges to employment.
  • Myth 3: One-Stop Career Centers are programmatically accessible when customers with disabilities are able to independently access core services.
  • Myth 4: Customers with disabilities are not able to achieve successful employment outcomes upon enrollment in WIA training.
  • Myth 5: An Integrated Resource Team is an Interagency Committee that meets regularly to build cross-agency awareness and build systems collaboration.
  • Myth 6: Under the Ticket-to-Work Program, One-Stop Career Centers can be successful Employment Networks without establishing a strong partnership with a Work Incentives Planning and Assistance Project or developing internal expertise in this area.
  • Myth 7: A One-Stop Career Center cannot ask a customer if he/she has a disability.
  • Myth 8: It is the role of the DRC, One-Stop staff, and/or a partner program to decide which service provider and resources best match a customer's needs.
  • Myth 9: One-Stop Career Centers have built the capacity to more effectively serve a diverse population of jobseekers by referring all customers with disabilities to a DPN or DRC for one-on-one employment and job search services, benefits counseling, and/or resource coordination.
